While talking to fans about cosplay ideas Twitch streamer Macaiyla discovered that she could pull off Junkrat from Overwatch surprisingly well.

Macaiyla has been dating popular Twitch streamer and League of Legends star ‘Tyler1’ since the two met at TwitchCon in 2016.

During a recent stream Macaiyla was discussing which characters she could pull off a cosplay of, and discovered Overwatch’s Junkrat just might be the perfect fit.

Macaiyla often appears on Tyler1’s stream, but has a sizable following of her own as well.

If the shoe fits

After hearing suggestions from chat, a lightbulb went off in Macaiyla’s head when someone brought up Junkrat.

“A Junkrat cosplay? Oh my god, my chin is probably as big as his,” she said before pulling up a picture of the hero to compare. “It is, this is so wrong.”

Macaiyla then compared her chin to the image of Junkrat and wouldn’t you know it, from the clip it seems like she her and Junkrat are the perfect match.

Whether or not she actually ends up cosplaying the Australian explosives enthusiast remains to be seen but the comparison did cause quite a stir in chat.

Macaiyla, obsessed with her chin?

This wasn’t the first time Macaiyla’s chin has come up on stream, when her boyfriend lost $10,000 on a bet she thought the money could have probably been used on something else chin-related.

“I could have bought a chin surgery for that money,” she mentioned. “You know, Tyler really didn’t think about us, it’s unbelievable. I could have had a normal chin by now.”

Not being able to get chin surgery may have been a blessing in disguise, because if she had she wouldn’t be able to pull off the Junkrat look anymore.

My Hero Academia cosplayer’s perfect Bakugou

While most of the anime centers on main protagonist Izuku Midoriya, the series quickly introduces a diverse cast once the character enrolls at U.A High. One of those is his childhood friend and rival Bakugou. 

Cosplayer Soph ‘sophieriiis’ went viral on Instagram after sharing their mind-blowing transformation into the hot-headed Katsuki. The artist brought the student’s explosive quirk to life with the help of photographer ‘jacob.cr2‘, who captured them posing with flames shooting from their hands.

In the series, Bakugou is able to store up sweat into his grenade shaped wrist guards, which Sophie has faithfully portrayed with life-size props. The artist also perfectly mirrored the hero’s large metal knee pads and neck brace which he uses to protect himself from explosions.
